More on the Gospel of Jesus' Wife

In the news: How Ariel Sabar chased the true story of "The Gospel of Jesus's Wife" from the Florida swingers scene to the Vatican ....

The Jesus' Wife fragment has been in the news for a while - here's a post by NT scholar Mark Goodacre from 2014: The Jesus' Wife Fragment is Back.

And ... Karen King Responds to ‘The Unbelievable Tale of Jesus’s Wife’

This news doesn't prove Jesus didn't have a wife, of course, but it just means that there is no known credible proof that he dud. What bugs me about the response to the Jesus' Wife fragment is the way so many Catholics seem relieved that it's a forgery. It's as if they believe Jesus couldn't be completely divine (and human) and at the same time be a husband. Why couldn't he be both?
